Death destroys a man, the idea of Death saves him.
Best Quotes about Death
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.
Lawrence, D. H.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Death can sneak up on you like a silent kitten, surprising you with it's touch and you have a right to act surprised. Other times death stomps in the front door, unwanted and unannounced, and makes it's noisy way to your seat on the sofa.
For 'Tis not in mere death that men die most.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
The course of my long life hath reached at last in fragile bark over a tempestuous sea the common harbor, where must rendered be account for all the actions of the past.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Few cross the river of time and are able to reach non-being. Most of them run up and down only on this side of the river. But those who when they know the law follow the path of the law, they shall reach the other shore and go beyond the realm of death.
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Against self-slaughter there is a prohibition so divine that cravens my weak hand.
A few can touch the magic string, and noisy fame is proud to win them: Alas for those that never sing, but die with all their music in them!
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
I want death to find me planting my cabbage
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I shall not wholly die, and a great part of me will escape the grave.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
Death is a very dull, dreary affair, and my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
Maugham, W. Somerset
Our dead brothers still live for us and bid us think of life, not death -- of life to which in their youth they lent the passion and glory of Spring. As I listen, the great chorus of life and joy begins again, and amid the awful orchestra of seen and unseen powers and destinies of good and evil, our trumpets, sound once more a note of daring, hope, and will.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
The Father is the Giver of Life; but the Mother is the Giver of Death, because her womb is the gate of ingress to matter, and through her life is ensouled to form, and no form can be either infinite or eternal. Death is implicit in birth.
He whom the Gods love dies young, while he is in health, has his senses and his judgments sound.
Plautus, Titus Maccius
The killing was the best part. It was the dying I couldn't take.
At birth man is offered only one choice --the choice of his death. But if this choice is governed by distaste for his own existence, his life will never have been more than meaningless.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [1 Corinthians 15:26]
A human act once set in motion flows on forever to the great account. Our deathlessness is in what we do, not in what we are.
He who is obsessed by death is made guilty by it.
It is hard to have patience with people who say There is no death or Death doesn't matter. There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.
Lewis, C. S.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
I am not the least afraid to die.
Darwin, Charles R.
I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart.
Landor, Walter Savage
Pale death with an impartial foot knocks at the hovels of the poor and the palaces of king.
Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.
Life, in my estimation, is a biological misadventure that we terminate on the shoulders of six strange men whose only objective is to make a hole in one with you.
Allen, Fred A.
Dying is something we human beings do continuously, not just at the end of our physical lives on this earth.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci
Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. [Psalms 39:4]
My idea of walking into the jaws of death is marrying some woman who has lost three husbands.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
He would make a lovely corpse.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Barbauld, Anna Letitia
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.
Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all, and death is but the sounder sleep.
I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn't want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have.
Life is the desert, life the solitude, death joins us to the great majority.
